Bristol Antifascists are joining with other radical groups and comrades in Bristol for a demonstration on 16th March to remember our comrade Anna Campbell and to show our shared commitment to all that she stood for and towards the better world she fought so hard for. Join us! Meet 2pm near the International Brigades plaque in Castle Park, between the church and the river.
15th March 2019 marks the first anniversary of when we lost Anna Campbell. Anna went out to Rojava, the Kurdish region of Syria, to join the Kurdish struggle against fascism. She was inspired by the revolution because of the politics of direct democracy, feminism and environmentalism and fought with the YPJ (Women’s Protection Units), who have been at the forefront in the fight against ISIS. Anna was killed by a Turkish airstrike whilst defending the city of Afrin.
Anna lived in Bristol before she left for Rojava, and throughout her life was active in many groups and causes, including prison abolition, feminism, anti-fascism and animal liberation.
Join with us to remember Anna and all those who have fallen in the struggle, and to take a stand for all that she, and we, believe in. The demonstration will be followed by a gathering at Hydra Bookshop, where Anna volunteered, to launch a zine made by Anna’s friends and comrades and to (hopefully) link up with the Internationalist Commune in Rojava. If you have ideas or contributions for the gathering please get in touch by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends, comrades and all those who wish to remember Anna and others are welcome.
